How do I get my name changed? 4 Answers as of August 22, 2011

I was divorced 2 years ago but my x husband did not put in the papers that I could get my maiden name back and was told I had to hire a lawyer and petition the same judge to change my name. I would like to know if there is another way I can do this myself.

In Georgia it does require a petition in Superior Court. It may or may not be the same judge. It's less expensive than you might think.

You will need to file a name change petition with the court. If you do not know how to properly complete the process yourself, you will need to hire an attorney.
